Five Parsecs Bug Hunt

I am new to miniature gaming. I picked this up for something to use my minis with since solo gaming is all I have time for now I love that I can use whatever I have instead of having specific sets.

The rules are enjoyable and fairly straightforward. It took me two games. (1.5hrs for the firs and 1 hr for the second) to get the rules down. The randomness of it gives good replay value and keeps it challenging. You'll get the most out of it if you create a narrative to gowith each game. I also recommend finding a group to share your battle reports with if you like playing with people but don't have time to coordinate schedules.

Argyle & Crew - Adventure in the Land of Skcos
Publisher: Troll in the Corner

As a teacher and lover of TTRPGs I have been looking for a way to introduce my own kids (ages 4 and 2) to the fun and life skills available in RPGs. I was excited when I found Argyle and Crew. The real-world aspects of it (making puppets, exploring your house, solving physical puzzles), the creativity, and cooperation was just what I was looking for for my young children.

For our first session they each picked an old sock. The older child added wings and the younger was just excited to have a sock on hand and to follow us around. The 4yo didn't want to act at first, so I played both the soppet and the characters helping him search for coins with him giving advice, but he soon took over. By the end he was helping the characters resolve problems (there was a very hungry dog and a lonely troll) and figuring out ways to navigate the playroom (a shoe rack became a fire ladder to get to the out-of-reach gold coin). He even got his 2yo sister involved by having her be the gold coin holder.

So, if you are interested in a fun way to teach your young children problem-solving, empathy, conversation, creativity, teamwork, sharing, etc. grab this game and let loose.
